Howard Stern went a little too far with his comments again it seems, and he immediately regretted it. “Girls” star and creator Lena Dunham had a fantastic weekend at the “Golden Globes” where her HBO show won her an award for Best Actress in a Comedy and Best Comedy, but on Monday Stern took to his radio show to apologize for some distasteful comments he spewed last week about the star for seemingly no reason.
Last week Stern took to the airwaves to put in his two cents about the “Girls” creator and star, calling her “a little fat girl who kind of looks like Jonah Hill.” He then went on to say “She keeps taking her clothes off and it kind of feels like a rape. I don't want to see that.”
It seems that after Dunham's big wins over the weekend Stern realized he had been a bit too harsh in his criticisms and said that he regrets the comments he made. "I felt bad because I really do love the show Girls, and enjoy it, and I admire the girl who writes it," said Stern. "It makes me feel bad, and I think she is getting the impression that I somehow think she's just a talentless little fat chick." I wonder what would give her that impression? Surely not that you called her a fat chick?
Dunham took the whole thing pretty well, and although she has not responded yet to the apology, last week on the “Late Show with David Letterman” she said “I'm a Howard Stern fan and really think he has earned the right to free speech and he should just go for it. But he did say something that is so funny that I want to get it on my gravestone: 'Congrats to her. It's so hard for little fat chicks to get anything going these days.' I want my gravestone to say, 'She was a little fat chick and she got it going.'”
Does Stern’s apology sound heartfelt to you?
